HELP! Casselman b 1839 Jefferson Cty
Posted by: Tracey Date: May 23, 2001 at 17:12:10

Can anyone help? I was planning a trip from Ontario to Watertown to look up birth records for my GG gf Francis Casselman, b 1839 in Watertown. I was informed today that NY state doesn't have birth records prior to 1880!!

Can anyone offer any other ideas? No idea what church the family may have attended, how long the family even lived there, IF they actually lived there...Francis' mother may have given birth en route to Ontario.

Francis was married in Ontario 1860, had 13 children, all born in Ontario, and he died in Ontario...

Francis' father's name has been seen as both Adam and Walker Casselman, and it is actually this man I am trying to find more about. I was hoping that Francis' birth registration might have told me more about his parents...

I am in Ontario, and don't know the procedures for searching in the US..any help to point me in a good direction would be greatly appreciated!
